's democratic party. what you here from barack obama, harry reid, nancy pelosi, dick durban is not lowering all tax rates to get economic growth. you have a modern democratic party that is so far to the left that they believe in sunday amount alley anti-american concepts of radical wealth redistribution in order to equalize everyone. that is not what america is all b. the leading party that is leading the country in terms of the white house and congress really believes that by force, i don't mean by military force like the old school communist and social lists did, but by force of the tax code and redistribution of policies like obamacare they intend to force that on the american people. megyn: keurs te megyn: durbin chose two good people to make that example of. people don't love and reveer the hedge fund manager, they make other people a lot of money and they make a lot of money but most people have respect for our navy seals. is he on point? >> i do think he's on point. what monica just said, radical redistribution, we are talking about the radical redistribution is going back to the clinton
as leader reid and leader durbin mentioned, had a lot of things we didn't like. it had some things we liked, particularly making sure that no benefits in medicare, social security and medicaid were cut. but it's now time for congress to get back to our regularly-scheduled programming, and that means jobs. while washington has been consumed with averting a default, our nation's unemployment problem has been worsening. it's time for jobs to be moved back to the front burn wither. with this debt reduction package completed, the decks are now cleared for a single-minded focus on jobs in september. by removing the threat of default for the next 18 months and by proving that both parties can come together to get our deficits under control, we have provided certainly to the credit markets. the debt limit agreement largely resolves the budgets for the next two years, so the wrangling over spending should be greatly reduced in coming months. we now have the chance to pivot away from budget battles to jobs. we can reset the debate, and that's what we intend to do. the jobs issue won't have to play se
on the table, but senate majority leader harry reid did embrace republicans who have turned against one of the party's most influential forces. >> one obstacle standing beyond congress and compromise, grover norquist. bullying lawmakers willing to put their oath of office and promised to serve constituents ahead of the pledge to lead this antitax sell it. his brand of ideological extremism has been bad for congress and work for -- worse for the country. distancing themselves this week. i appreciate that very much. lou: with the majority leader's things we turn now to the man at the center of mr. reed's spewing of vitriol, of variable stream. we are joined by grover norquist , president of americans for tax reform. i have to ask you. how does it feel to be a bully of lawmakers? i like this part especially, anti-tax sell at. the logical extremists. to find yourself is really being pointed that as the problem, not part of the solution here suddenly. how do you feel that? >> well, look. harry reid had a plan. he and obama and nancy pelosi were going to spend a great deal of money, and then
. >> also late tonight, harry reid said the three republicans are politicizing the benghazi matter, calling it, quote, outrageous. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington. the white house and congress have five weeks to keep us from going over the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. that would mean automatic tax hikes and spending cuts at the same time and an economists say it could cause another resomething. the president met with congressional leaders from both parties, but harry reid says there has not been much progress since then. mike emmanuel is on capitol hill. republicans are asking for changes to social security and medicare. any common ground? >> shep, in public, it does not sound like it. top republican leaders say if you want to avoid the fiscal cliff, you need to address the drivers of our debt. >> we know that the only way we can solve our long-term debt and deficit problem is to fix the unsustainable growth rates of our very popular entitlement programs. the president has from time to time indicated an openness to that. now is the time to actually do it. >> 42 business
, supervisors. i'm gregory reid with a. philip randolph institute, san francisco. we are here to say we are very, very excited about this project because we're one of the cbos that worked very hard, community based organizations that worked very hard to help get the local ordinance in with this project that is now [speaker not understood] with this project. and with that, we work hard as an organization to help get -- find employment for people who are in the community, here in san francisco particularly, the bayview hunters point area as well as throughout the whole city. with all that said, though, we would like to make sure that the supervisors do take the time to address all the concerns from all the people in the city in a hope that after everything is said and done and this project moves forward, whatever, that it could go forward with the spirit -- positive light, positive spirit so that everyone will be happy and be proud of this project. thank you. >> thank you, mr. reid. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is nick penn. i am with [speaker not understood] south of market employment
to raise the debt ceiling. first, senate majority leader harry reid and republican majority leader mitch mcconnell will talk on the senate floor about the january fiscal deadline. >> since our country voted to return president obama to the white house, i have spoken often about compromise. i remain optimistic that, when it comes to our economy, when it comes to protecting middle-class families from a whopping tax hike, republicans and democrats will be able to find common ground. president dwight eisenhower, a republican, once said, "people talk about the middle of the road as though it were unacceptable. there have to be compromises. the middle of the road is all usable space." so said white house and higher. -- dwight eisenhower. too often, we face off, not realizing that the solution rests somewhere in the middle. i remind everyone of one fact. this congress is one vote away from avoiding a fiscal cliff for middle-class families and small businesses. we can solve the greatest economic emergency facing the nation today if only the house would consent the senate-passed bill freezing --
't be just being against the democrats. and against harry reid and against obama. you have to be for things, and we have to give them something like the contract with america, that we gave them some years ago. we have to give them something to be for. and as far as young women are concerned, absolutely. i don't think anybody like me, i can state my position on abortion, but, to -- other than that, leave the issue alone. when we are in the kind of economic situation and, frankly, national security situation we're in. >> chris: when you say leave the issue alone, you would allow, you say, freedom of choice? >> i would allow people to have those popinions and rec those opinions and i'm proud of my pro-life position and record and if someone disagrees with me, i respect your views. >> chris: senator mccain, thank you as always for coming in today, you will have a busy final weeks here in 2012. >> we certainly will. thank you, sir. >> chris: thank you. up next 'tis the season to shop and spend, but the upcoming fiscal clip put a damper on consumers and investors? ♪ we're sitting on a bunch of
was eileen maloney. she was terrific. assistant police chief by the name of frank reid tried to dissuade me from taking the job. "don't take it and two weeks later if something happens they will blame you" but i like to take on jobs. well, he kind of felt sorry for me, and i had no vehicles, nothing, no employees. the door bell rang and there is a police officer outside and the chief sent these keys. you have a unmarked police car until you get a vehicle. well, i paid them back. three weeks later i was driving down venice and left on to broadway and the radio went on and strong arm robbery in pacific heights and woman assaulted and bag stolen and identified the car and two individuals and proceeding north on lawenna. gee, i am going in that direction. i have a naval aif eightor's eye and incredible eye sight and wouldn't you know it there is the vehicle coming straight towards me and the traffic was slow and could reach out and touch and i made a u turn and i got on the roo. the director of radio services had a call sign at the time and close to the police chiefs. i got on and call
republicans not convinced. but top democrats like harry reid coming to her rescue saying, and i'm quoting here, the personal attacks against ambassador rice by certain republican senators have been outrageous and utterly unmoored from facts and reality. today she's back on the hill, meeting with the head of the homeland security committee saying she's not sure they have 60 votes to confirm her if, in fact, she's nominated. lynn >>> well, jill kelley, the tampa socialite caught up in the scandal involving former cia chief david petraeus, is now going on the offense. after two weeks of silence kelley's lawyers has released e-mails he wrote designed to prove she never intentionally or acted inappropriately. one letter to the u.s. attorney demands to know who in the government leaked kelley's name to the media after she received e-mails from petraeus biographer and mistress paula broadwell. meanwhile, "the new york times" reports the pentagon investigation into e-mails between kelley and general allen t top nato commander in afghanistan, has been narrowed down to between 60 and 70 messages that ac
be reached. this comes on the heels of yesterday when you had harry reid expressing caution about the fact things ar were nt going that well. we are seeing the market to the downside, they have improved and you can see it spiked up. alaska mitra said to them. dagen: speaking of house speaker john boehner, he said he is optimistic. >> i'm optimistic we can work together to avert this crisis sooner than later. connell: we also want to show you this, this is skepticism from who you would think would be a major player in the deficit talks. >> i am really worried we have a probability we could go over the cliff, and that would be catastrophic. not to go over the cliff, we have to compromise, have to have revenue. the problems are real, the solutions are painful, no easy way out. the only way you can do this ifs to have a balanced approach and that is where people are headed. connell: matt welch is here. what do you make of all this, matt? >> there is nobody at the table actually interested in cutting the size of the government. that seems strange to democrats who think we're living in some sort
change that changed is harry reid says he wants to do something about the filibuster. isn't what i want to do. it feels to me like a tectonic shift saying we need to change this, it has gone too far. >> it really is. harry reid has long defended the perogatives of the senate and of the filibuster even in the face of criticism from his own members, but virtually all of his members now want to do something and he has been infuriated by the way in which mitch mcconnell has carried out, but if you think about t it is a very odd time to do this. the house is under the control. >> you don't get that much. >> of the republicans, so it is not as if the filibuster is the only thing standing in the way >> of the republicans, so it is not as if the filibuster is the only thing standing in the way of democratic program and as norm said, at the beginning of this new congress president obama has a better shot at working with the senate including 6, 8, 10, republicans in using that to put pressure on the house so is this the right time to blow up the senate? >> norm, real quick, do you think we need 6
wound up going to emergency flee d, three days in a row, actually. >> now thousands like reid are taking lead action. civil rights attorney john buress filed a massive lawsuit against chevron on behalf of 5,000 complaints. and he says it's just the start. >>> we anticipate that we'll have another 5,000 or 6,000 that will file in the near future. >> the lawsuit is designed, one to they would them accountable for what they did. to have them acknowledge their misdeeds and not engage in coverup and to fully compensate the individuals who have been damaged financially by this. >> chevron says it set up a claims process, including help centers to compensate victims. they call the lawsuit unnecessary and pledge to fight it vigorously. reid says chevron offered to pay her $500, but shed to join others in the legal action instead. she says she wants chevron to make changes. >> i think it would minimize and cut down a lot of fires. and also to have regular checks. so this can be prevented. zbl now john says he's not sure how much money they will be seeking but he expects it to be quite a bit more
on? >> well i oppose the idea that senator reid is proposing. i think it is a mistake to limit the rights of people who elected me and others to have the right to offer amendments and to have unlimited debate on the senate floor. you know, it is interesting when president obama was a senator and republicans were thinking about using this, he said, oh, no, it is terrible, it would destroy the institution and would hurt the country. same thing when senator biden was a senator spoke against it. when harry reid was in the minority he was against it. now they're in the majority. seems like a power play. i think you shouldn't break the rules which is only thing they can do, because they don't have votes to change the rules. you should not break the rules to change the rules. melissa: from here it is so hard for us to tell how close we're getting to a deal or not. we have our own "money" meter which is scale one to money, what is likelihood a deal gets done. what do you think? what is the likelihood? >> i think it is closer to money than to your odds of winning the powerball but we're

everywhere that senator harry reid wants to severely curtail and restrain the my in the's power to flu filibuster. what can you tell us about that? >> i would just tell you the senate -- when i got here the senate worked very well. everybody could offer amendments. they were respectful of the amendments they offered. they knew if they took advantage of it, there would be consequences in terms of people not voting for their amendments. we've lost quality leadership in the senate, and harry reid's answer to that is change the rules, and if he changes the rules, he will have totally defeated our founder's purpose of creating a senate where minority rights are protected, and -- and what that will do is that will create two houses of congress rather than a house and a senate, and it just says majority rules with an iron fist. >> so you're going to fight it. >> well, i would tell you, my hope would be that if he carries out his threat, the senate will be shut down until he restores the rights of the minority because that's what our founders did. the reason they did a bicameral legislature an

senator majority leader reid said there was little progress being made on the fiscal cliff. that was yesterday afternoon. we lost 50 points on the dow. even though mr. reid said he was hopeful a deal could be reached, damage was done. senator mccobble said democrats should be more actively involved in the debates. he said the president was traveling around the country having complain like stops, he should come back to the capitol and make a deal. today representativeboehner saying he was optimistic a cliff deal could be rachd. the market rallied nicely on that after disappointing new home sales results. just in the last hour, we've rallied because the president has come out and said he would like to have a deal on the fis calf cliff by christmas. that's exactly what the markets want to hear. they want a timetable for when a deal can be reached and they want it before the end of the year. we move up to the highs of the day on that news. >> a deal by christmas with a bow on it perhaps, bob. >>> dozens of ceos as we mentioned earlier meeting with congressional leaders right no
and spending cuts and away from taxes and no movement in harry reid's association, he says that democrats have cut enough. >> well, remember we've already done more than a billion dollars worth of cuts, we've already done that. so we need credit for that and those negotiations that take place, and however, here is a cave caveat, senator dick durbin is taking a hard line approach. quote, we can't be so naive to believe that just taxing the rich will solve our problems and put everything on the table, repeat. everything on the table. and that's the left of center dick durbin. yesterday, t was taxes, today, there's entitlements, tte impasse continues as we countdown to that deadline. next case, china, clearly the number one world's polluter and criticizes us for not doing enough about climate change, a global carbon tax could be coming, are we going to have to pay? we'll talk to a leading environmentalist after the break and of course, we will have the opening belfour you next. bell for you next. >> all right, just a few seconds away from the opening bell. the futures suggest we're going be to

. not only that, let's not forget that the last time that the senate had a budget is when harry reid worked with his friend, and nobody in the 2008 budget complained that they weren't spending enough money. that cuts out a trillion in spending right there. are you concerned about the time that they had taken have taken on this first day of the discussion? >> i was not hopeful that the president's tone. [talking over each other] [talking over each other] lou: are you being partisan here? >> i am not being partisan. i am being objective when i say that the president pays 1.6 trillion in new revenues. he wants to destroy the economy. no one in their right mind is going to allow that kind of increase to devastate the economy. lou: that's a good point. it's interesting that no one is talking about the fact that individual tax payment, 26% of the bush tax cuts over the past two years, the answer here is this. i just want to see everybody be happy. let me turn to benghazi. there is a palpable sense in washington dc right now. i don't believe the congress has the strength or the tools to actually p
and majority leader senator reid from nevada. both won reelection in 2010. over a year later in march 2011, bracer are still had no love. they sent e-mail to jonathan silver who is executive dirt of the energy department phone guarantee program. he was responsible for making sure these loans went through. woolard wanted software to review a draft e-mail that the chairman of the board of bracer synergy was planning to send to william daley, who was then chief of staff to president obama at the white house. and this is from the e-mail. either e-mail or call and you can with suggestions woolard wrote. the e-mail stated the white house needs to focus on finalizing the loan guarantee for what would be the largest solar project in the world. bracer's energy was conditionally approved more than a year ago and is in the final stages of being completed. we need a commitment from the white house for a long closure between allenby india d. by march 18, end quote. a house energy and commerce subcommittee meeting last may, chairman jim jordan said to woolard, quote, you're asking the guy in charge of m
-panthers, philadelphia. >> how about that monday-nighter? >> i know. i just continue to worry about andy reid because he looks so pathetic. >> yeah, it's been a very rough year for the eagles and their head coach andy reid. a lot of folks are calling for his head. this team lost six in a row, the most since before he took over. but while a lot of people want him fired right now, i think you have to look at the body of work, carol, for him. six division titles, he won an nfc championship game, winningest coach ever in philadelphia. and i think a little respect, too, for reid as a person who lost his son earlier in the season. you could make a change with this eagles' team, a lot of injuries, including michael vick. but a lot of people also believe that an interim coach in the middle of a year doesn't always translate into immediately turning things around. so i believe, like a lot of people, that reid will be gone, but it won't happen probably until the end of the year. >> vince chelani from bleacher report, thank you so much. >> don't forget, go to bleacherreport.com. carol, good to see you. >> i'm goin
the table and if harry reid is trading bars with mitch mcconnel, what is up here. senator durban said, it shouldn't be ps deal. i don't think there is a bar gain to be had. it is a win win for alabama. he is going to get the tax hikes or the rb ares will say no deal and he gets the tax hikes which is what he will prefer anyway. that is a big pot of money he can use for whatever he wants. they are still not going to be a deal. baker, democrats saying there is no problem with social security, even though the piece in the "wall street journal" today said they are $20 trillion in the hole. they said they are $40 trillion in the hole. how can democrats argue that with a straight face. i know that stuff inside and out. most of those shortfalls are in the 22nd century. we don't have a big problem with those programs. in fact most of the story is health care. the budget office may adjust their projections and the story disappears. i know people like to run aaround with that but it doesn't make sense. >> what me worry scenario. medicare no problem. medicaid no problem. i don't know, one trilli

leader of the united states senate, the honorable harry reid. >> today the people of burma and the united states honor aung san suu kyi. her personal sacrifice and her dedication to spreading freedom and justice not only in burma but in the world. even when it meant separation from her family, when it meant being a part from her husband at the hour of his death, aung san suu kyi has remained true to her cause. today i also recognize my colleague, republican leader mitch mcconnell. i have stood next to him on the senate floor now for a long time, and there is no cause for which he has been more pronounced in doing something about than aung san suu kyi and burma. i extend my congratulations, my admiration and i applaud him for his good work. he has been a long standing advocate in the united states to focus on burma and what is wrong there with the ruling junta. he co-sponsored the economic sanctions bill that helped push the regime toward freedom. sometimes people think it is hard for the two parties of congress to find common ground. lots of times it is. but i am pleased that where the bu
, let's don't forget the last time that the senate had a budget, it was when harry reid worked with his friend, speaker pelosi and nobody in the 2008 budget complained that it wasn't spending enough money. let's go back to 2008. $2.5 trillion, and cuts off a trillion in spending, right there. >> lou: there are all sorts of ways to get there, as you suggest here tonight, and, as suggested in other forums as well, but the idea that this president an boehner are coming together to have at least a civil discourse over what in the world we're going to do about the fiscal cliff, six weeks remain, are you any more hopeful as a result of the tone they've taken on the first day of discussion? >> well, i wasn't hopeful with the president's tone, when he said -- >> are you being partisan here? >> i'm not being partisan, i am being objective, when i say that the president proposed $1.6 trillion in new revenue? he wants to destroy the economy? come on. who in their right mind will allow that kind of increase to devastate the economy. it will not be hostess going out of business. >> lou: that is a go

, the senate majority leader harry reid the democrat over the weekend, perhaps to try to jump-start the talks. as of now, as the house of representatives comes back today, as the senate came back yesterday, we're still very much in limbo on the fiscal cliff. >> here's something else we know. some major republicans have come out and they say that they don't feel bound by the americans for tax reform pledge. most recently we saw house majority leader eric cantor. do you believe more republicans will stick by this? >> what we're finding out right now zoraida is that there's a little bit of coming to jesus moment about how to fix the fiscal cliff. for republicans perhaps it is going to be higher taxes. for democrats there's going to have to be some changes to entitlement reform. but grover norquist has been really the person pushing this no tax pledge, has been on our airwaves. he's been talking a lot about it. let's hear what he had to say about republicans who might break the pledge. >> no pledge taker has voted for a tax increase. they've had some people discussing impure thoughts on national

[applause] >> good morning. speaker, leaders reid and mcconnell. today when congress bestows the congressional gold medal on arnold palmer, we will be honoring a living legend. he is an icon of american sports and a success in all of his endeavors. a humanitarian, businessman, philanthropist. he personifies the american dream, the idea that anyone can travel as far as their talent will carry them. we think him for his service in the coast guard, for protecting that american dream for all americans. born to humble beginnings and raised in latrobe, pennsylvania, arnold rose from blue-collar roots to becoming the king, the king of golf. as king of golf, he raised up arnold's army. he always demonstrated etiquette, courtesy and friendship to fans and competitors alike. as arnie's army followed him on the course, he taught everyone about perseverance and discipline. he taught us that you can be six strokes ahead, and still lose. but you can be strikes -- six strokes behind and still win. as he said, he always made a total effort, even when the odds see
and part of the gang. thank you for joining us. >> senate leaders spoke with reporters. harry reid said republicans are holding up a deal on the so- called fiscal cliff. republicans said they do not understand why democrats are looking to change the rules on filibusters. this is 20 minutes. >> we had a meeting with the four leaders up here at the white house, it went very well. the problem was that was before thanksgiving. and since that time, there has been little progress with the republicans, which is a disappointment to me. we only have a couple of weeks to get something done. we have to get away from the happy talk and start talking about specific things. and one month taxes are set to rise for all americans. we passed in the -- we passed in the senate a piece of legislation to protect people making less than $250,000 a year. we have rejected on a bipartisan basis the republicans' efforts to extend the tax cuts for everybody. those are the two majors we have dealt with on the senate floor. if we fail to reach an agreement, the average middle- class family will see their taxes go up
and he doesn't want to be we've learned an awful lot about how the president and harry reid behaved behind closed doors from woodward's book, at a don't think it reflected well on the white house. but let's see that. the second point, and these are i think very both doable, and the second one is that whatever is agreed to do, that he needs to be put in writing and online for seven days so that not just the lobbyists in washington, d.c. can know what is in it, that every american can know what's in and do research and look at and have other people disaggregated and take a look at it before either the house or the senate vote on it. there's a new verb in washington called to be correct, and those of republicans who felt they were sold a bill of kids by the bush white house and the treasure department the treasure department is to do this, do this, it's an emergency. white emergencies require expenditures of money, $350,000,000,000.6 months later strikes me as the question as to whether they've been cheated or not. they think they're being cheated to be transported to be rushed out in
that's caused significant gridlock in the past, senate majority leader harry reid thinks a deal can be done by mid december, well ahead of the deadline. >> we have the cornerstone of being able to work something out. we're both going to have to give up some of the things that we to are a problem and so, it's like when we arrive at a point where we all know something has to be done. there's no more let's do it some other time. >> right now, there's some outside pressure on congressional negotiators to raise the 18.4 cent per gallon federal gasoline tax, something that's being pushed by state highway officials and road builders across america. casinos are also pushing to get language legalizing online poker into a deal and governors hit hard by superstorm sandy or wanting more if federal aid to come to them through a potential deal. whatever agreement it made to avoid the fiscal cliff, it's going to be worth a lot of money and now is the time that groups are stepping up to see if they can get in on some of that. >> all right, everyone wants a little piece of the action and everyone wa
. there is a theory -- patty murray is a prominent democrat. doesn't have the name recognition of harry reid. she clearly says if we don't get what we want, let's go over the cliff. this is the most important part. we talk about the fiscal cliff and recession. this is not as if a fire and brimstone will ring down on the earth on january 1st. slow and steady decline. when i tell people i expect us to breach this and go into the new year, i don't think that this is going to be the power goes out on january 1st. there will be a debate and slope. if you resolve this in a week or week and a half or two weeks, not much will happen economically speaking. the economy will not fold in on itself and we'll have this conversation eating spam in cave in the woods. >> that's good to know. he may be judging from what his weekends are like. >> that's an official view. >> where's the love? happy holidays to everybody. >> spam is not good. >> it's delicious. >> dan, thanks for stopping by. sears, kmart, walmart, best buy adding last-minute deals to sales list for black friday shoppers. find out what the deals are

. president obama has 19 nominees in the pipeline currently, and senator reid needs to move those forward. >> here we go. >> move them forward. it's time. it's important for women who are going to be impacted by these questions. >> i think we should also look at the ways in which these laws impact low-income women. going back to the hyde amendment which we're not talking about anymore. henry hyde would love to prevent any woman from having abortion. how do women get to the point where they're turned away from a clinic. oftentimes, they have trouble paying for an abortion. according to the 2008 numbers, they've declined except low income women. again, these state laws, they impact especially the ones where there aren't providers. the women in the study 150 miles away from the latest providers. they're seeking to drive abortion providers out of business so only the affluent women can travel that far. >> diana, in your study, you're looking at people already in tough economic circumstances. but what can you say with sort of some confidence about both for them and their children, how life wou
. and the president of the united states called mr. boehner and mr. reid over the weekend. it looks like the president is going to continue the push and meet with the ceo's tomorrow. they upon meet with irskin bowles. he was the co-chair of simpson-bowles commission . mr. bowles had a great plan. he is a democrat, that offered up 800 billion in new revenue and overhaul the tax system and changes to medicare and that's why the republicans are asking the democrats to come in and explain your deal. this plan was hatched in 2010 and everyone walked away from it and now they call bowles back up? it is late. this is what the american people are upset about. nothing gets done. >> steve: we are a month from the cliff. >> gretchen: we could have avoided the cliff if they used the plan as a starting point. americans are upset nothing gets done. >> brian: norquist is the bad guy. you should walk away from grover norquest. he said you have enough money on capitol hill and stop asking us . he's been a watch dog on our money so whether you are democrat or republican you should salute him. he warned you in the past
. it started with harry reid and the simpson-bowles commission. i thought this was another commission where the work would be buried on some hard drive, but it turned out to be a historic effort and a game changer. mainly through the good work of erskine bowles and alan simpson, but hard work was put into this by 18 members, evenly divided between house and senate, democrat and republican. we voted for the final work product. then i was invited to join the gang of 6 to try to continue the conversation and that expanded to the gang of 8. has been going on for two years. that's awful lot of popcorn in mark warner's office, but it was a great indication -- education and in really talking through not just the reality of the deficit but the political reality of the deficit, which we have to be more sensitive to if we're looking for a solution. all all the way, some of my friends on the left came to visit. i recall one in particular, a labor leader who said, "what is a nice progress of like you doing in a place like this? why are you hanging with these people? you know they are up to no good ." i
in washington, senate leaders, they are speaking out. you have democrat harry reid saying the president won the election. and it is time for republicans to fall in line. meantime, republican mitch mcconnell not impressed with the president's plans to go back on the road. take a listen. >> look, we already know the president is a very good campaigner, congratulate him on his re-election. what we don't know is whether he has the leadership qualities necessary to lead it a bipartisan agreement on big issues, like we currently face. >> last year of his campaign, every place he went, that's what he talked about. americans, when they voted, raised their voices and supported our pledge. congress must act in accordance with the will of the american people. >> let's kick this conversation off in washington. republican rand paul of kentucky is joining me, kentucky's junior senator, elected in 2010. you probably know this, it bears repeating here, you're opposed to raising any taxes, anyone's taxes, even some in his party are flirting with compromise on that issue. senator paul, welcome. thank you for

is not for them and harry reid is not for the. at the state level -- you think taxing high income people does not affect growth? we are having an experiment. california. it is called maryland. i don't see any reason why we do not wait two years and see how california is doing with their new higher marginal tax rates on folks. and sales taxes on middle income people as well. illinois raising income taxes and sales taxes and maryland's -- a millionaire's tax for those -- they cannot leave because they are federal workers -- and those making a million dollars and walk across the border. they are testing obama's theories in the states. i think they should do it on a small state like vermont first and see how it works. but they wanted to california so we are doing california. texas and florida will give you an idea of how you can govern without an income tax -- not a 13% income-tax. people move. the kind of know what will happen -- indiana passed right to work, cutting taxes, giving half the kids in the state school choice, a voucher, a scholarship of $5,000. illinois just raise taxes so as not to
with speaker of the house boehner and senate majority leader reid over the weekend. our team is continuing discussions with their congressional counterparts on this matter and it is entirely appropriate, i would say, both for the president and for leaders in congress, to have this discussion, not just among themselves but with the american people. and that's what the president's doing. that's why he's meeting with business leaders. i assume you wouldn't or critics would not suggest that is a mistake or meeting with civic leaders or labor leaders, because everyone the president's meeting with has both i think useful ideas and a substantial stake in the outcome of these negotiations because it is vitally important that we take action to ensure that, for example, middle-class americans don't see their taxes go up by an average of $2,200 next year. there's no reason for that to happen. because as you know, democrats and republicans alike believe those tax rates should not go up. so let's act on what we agree on. let's demonstrate to the american people that washington can function. that when e
